    Jonathan Quick Drops Three F-Bombs At Kings Stanley Cup Rally (Video)

    As one would imagine, the Los Angeles Kings have had a pretty fun week, parading the Stanley Cup all around the “City of Angels” for the very first time. It’s first stop was the team’s favorite watering hole, a pub in Hermosa Beach, just a few hours after their victory Monday night. Then, on Tuesday […]

    11 Best NHL Defensemen of All Time

    Nw that Nicklas Lidstrom has decided to call it a career—he officially retired this past Friday—it’s time to once again attempt the absurd: ranking the greatest NHL defensemen of all time. Why is it absurd? Because there are a hell of a lot of good defensemen who’ve played the game and, more importantly, there are […]

    This Day In Sports History (June 1st) — Pittsburgh Penguins

    It was on this day in 1992 that the Pittsburgh Penguins repeated as Stanley Cup Champions.  The Penguins beat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-5 in Game 4 to sweep the series.

    This Day In Sports History (May 25th) – Quebec Nordiques

    It was on this day in 1995 that the Quebec Nordiques were sold to a group of investors from Denver, Colorado.  The Nordiques were re-located for the beginning of the 1995-96 season to Colorado, where they became the Colorado Avalanche.

    Another Dirty Hit at the IIHF World Championships (Video)

    The Stanley Cup Playoffs got off to a violent start this year, with dirty hit after dirty hit grabbing the headlines. And apparently, all this aggression has spilled over into hockey’s version of the NIT—IIHF World Championships.

    USHL Hockey Goalie Makes Wicked Bare-Handed Save (Video)

    You don’t hear an awful lot about the United States Hockey League, or USHL. It doesn’t attract the top young (ages 15-20) hockey talent, so it doesn’t get as much attention from hockey media and scouts as Canadian junior leagues like the WHL, QMJHL, and OHL. However, it is the top junior hockey league in […]

    Ilya Bryzgalov’s Give-Away Leads To Series-Losing Goal (Video)

    It would be great to have a few beers with Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. I mean, there aren’t many hockey players who are experts on Russian liqueurs, endangered species, and Chinese law. And I’d dare to guess that there even fewer hockey players who like to wax philosophic on mankind’s place in the cosmos […]

    Braden Holtby Doesn’t Flinch (Video)

    In a game as tight as last night’s thrilling Game Seven battle between the Washington Capitals and the Boston Bruins, sometimes all it takes is the blink of an eye for one’s Stanley Cup hopes to be snatched from under their nose.  Despite having only six games of playoff experience (all in 2012), Braden Holtby […]
